Negotiations between the United Steelworkers and Vale have entered their third day.
This may be some promising news for the employees who have been on strike for nearly 14 months.
The talks were originally scheduled for two days.
Wayne Fraser, the District Director for Ontario and Atlantic Canada, told us yesterday that talks would continue outside of the scheduled two days if progress was being made.
The negotiations are being assisted by a provincially appointed mediator: Bill Wells.
Details from the negotiations are not being made public due to a media blackout.
We spoke with a source shortly before 1pm who told us that talks are in fact continuing.
